I need to replace the rear motor of my giant slideout which is currently retracted. I took apart the inside of the unit to access the motor, which I found, but it appears that it must be released and replaced from the outside.

But I can't extend the slideout... and can't figure out how to do it manually. I've tried removing power and control wires from both motors. I don't appear to have any type of 5/8 inch manual system...

Any thoughts?

Im of limited help because my Sunseeker is a non slide unit.

Were you able to get info on the FR forum ? I just ran across this regarding slides.

A quick look around the internet says to push it out manually. Recruit the local high school football varsity line .

Anyone every tried to jack it out? Or done it? I don't have access to a bunch of people.

If one side motor is working, can I disconnect the other side and push just on that side?
